. >> a few weeks ago i went to copenhagen, denmark. what a cool city it is. >> bill: apparently oprah winfrey loves the socialistic aspects of denmark. the culture warriors have been investigating that. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. another $100 million of american tax money heading to haiti. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. world is cringing looking at pictures like these caused by that terrible earthquake in haiti. no one knows for sure but the death toll could top 100,000. right now lives are in the balance as there are folks alive in the rubble. already, thousands of american military are going to haiti, trying to save lives and impose some kind of order there. today, president obama pledged an enormous amount of money. >> i'm also announcing an iminvestment of $100 million to support our relief efforts. this will mean more of the life-saving equipment food water and medicine that will be needed. this investment will grow over the coming year as we emb
talk a little bit about energy but not much about copenhagen again or climate change and the development agenda with regard to adaptation and mitigation. >> thank you, hattie. has you know, we are very committed to a program of supporting adaptation and mitigation and technology transfer in the developing world. i went to copenhagen and announced that the united states would commit to do our part of $100 billion by 2020. we worked very hard to get the building blocks of an agreement that would enable us to do so. the accord that we finally hammered out did have requirements for verification and transparency which have to be adhered to in order for us to be able and, frankly, willing to make these investments. but i think that for many of the developing countries, this is a lifeline that they are desperate to have and that they will work with us as we try to sort out how best to deliver on that commitment. this is going to be an ongoing challenge and that is why i mention we have to do a better job of getting some of the other countries that have a role to play more co
not done all it can do to bring the international community to a deal in copenhagen and beyond copenhagen. and of course on the economic end, there is a sense that africa's resources are being extracted at all costs and that the people on the continent, those in communities on whose land resources lie, are still being marginalized, still being seen as invisible, even with obama in the white house. >> i guess that she pointed out the disappointments. what successes would we point to on the part of the administration? >> i would start by saying i wouldn't characterize it as disappointments. they are more concerns. i just got back from three weeks in west africa where it is evident there is still a great deal of hope. i would say president obama has a great deal of political capital spent on the continent. but in terms of successes, to me i think one of the biggest success cases is the fact that in his first year as a president, he visited the continent and we s the secretary of state visit -- spend ten days on the continent and visited over seven countries. this was quite significant.os the
, which became a very critical issue in the discussions in copenhagen. >> abernethy: let me move to another point, kim especially. there is an investigation going on, or a review, or whatever is the right term for it, of catholic nuns in this country by the vatican. where is that going? and when will we know what comes of it? >> the vatican says that it wants to looknto the quality of life for u.s. sisters. that has created a huge amount of consternation here in the u.s., as there are questionnaires that have been sent to different communities of sisters with a lot of questions. many of them feel like, we're not going to answer some of these. so that's going to be moving forward throughout this year, as that sort of give-and-take moves forward. do they answer these questions? what do they say? how do they say it? what's really behd all of these questions in the first place? that's what a lot of people, not just among nuns but across the cathic community, want to know: what's really behind this study, this investigation? >> there's a great danger here. i think this could prove a v
with a company that does air drops. we went to our own bank in copenhagen. we told them and told them we need a lot of dollar bills. >> they also insist on proof of life and demanded the crew be displayed on deck. >> they took pictures. i wasn't a pirate, but i looked like a pirate so they took pictures when they made the drop. >> this is how it happened. >> we will just cover and wait for the crew to be with you on the deck and take a final photograph. >> crammed in the capsule was the only currency the pirates will accept, brand new u.s. bills, more than $1 million worth of them. >> 100-dollar bills? >> one hundred dollar bills. >> and we had also, in order to try to facilitate the distribution of the funds," we provided a note counter. one of the electric deals the banks have. and they were being paid according to a formula. >> a formula that rifles anything on wall street. >> the suppliers get paid. >> for some reason they couldn't agree so it took them 13 hours to split the loot. and at some point they all crammed into the captain's cabin and they had a major argument about distributing
to cut emissions. he had a real seat at the table in copenhagen, and this is the story that he's been spending much of his time on. but in addition we also talked about global markets. i asked him about currencies today, how he's investing and he had some interesting things to say about the valuations in the stock market. how do you see things right now in terms of the environment, globally speaking and in the u.s. right now? where are we in the cycle? >> i think that the collapse of the depression was prevented. the collapse the financial markets was avoided or the off the life support actually worked so the markets are now stabilized. the premiums have shrunk back to normal levels. so that's -- that's fine. and the economy has begun to move forward. but it's only moving forward because it's pushed by the stimulus and that's particularly true in the united states. >> reporter: what are your thoughts on the president's proposals in the banking industry? >> well i'm very supportive. i think it's a step in the right direction. because the banking system has to be changed. this idea of a
is a little bit of a narrower one. you talked a little bit about energy but not much about copenhagen and climate change and agenda assistance with regard to adaptation and mitigation? >> right. thank you. as you know, we're very committed to a program of supporting adaptation and mitigation and technology transfer in the developing world. i went to copenhagen and announced that the united states would committee to do our part of 100 billion dollars - by 2020. we worked very hard to get the building blocks of an agreement that would enable us to do so. the accord that we finally hammered out did have requirements for verification and transparency that have to be adhered to, in order for us to be able and frankly, willing to make the investments. i think for many of the developing countries. this is a lifeline that they are desperate to have and that they will work with us as we try to sort out how best to deliver on that commitment. this is going to be an on-going challenge, and that's why i mentioned we have to do a better job of getting some of the other countries that have a role
not only the grain economy but the climate change problem. the failure of the copenhagen meeting conference was not only partly a question the difficulties to agree on goals among the different players, but also behind this the fact that it is a huge amount of resources to do something attractive and, you know, people are talking about a billion a year figure when you listen to what has been said by the main leaders in copenhagen that you have 1 million plus one plus one in 1015, but so it's another magnitude if we really want to address this problem it is as big for the future of mankind as many say and i do believe is true there we need to find more innovative ways of financing and certainly from this point of view the input of of the imf may be helpful. well, thank you very much. i'm sorry to keep peace so late.

of the 2-20 was the shape of the emerging world. i looked back to the scene at copenhagen where the president burst into the room, but who is in the room? brazil, india, china, what is the arrangement of these new power arrangements? secondly, looking forward to the end of his first term, what is it reasonable to ask of this president in shaping what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping -- >> what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping this presidency. >> i am not so sure that it is a post american world. -- post-american world. we aren't indispensable nation, -- we are an indispensable nation. in asia, i thought that the coverage of obama's relations with asia was poor. when he came back from asia, the prime minister of india came to the white house for a state visit and obama is effectively in certain the united states into haitian politics and recognizing the degree to which of the rising powers of asia turned to the united states for some kind of leverage and balance. . . obama seems to be moving toward this new alignment. personally, i think this rei

the british prime minister paul them out for failing to live up to his promises in copenhagen about imposing a carbon tax. the president fully expected that his hundreds of supporters would stand in share while the justices remained seated and silent, unable to respond even after word. moreover, the president's speech was only released 30 minutes before the event, after the justices or already present." "the new york times" online is saying the justice alito was right on the substance issue, saying "not true" to how the president characterized the decision. but "the american prospect" on- line said that, but what i democracy, it is okay to -- "in democracy, it is okay to criticize public officials." good morning. caller: can you hear me clearly? host: we can. caller: excellent it might take on the dialogue between a twa jet went -- two in the two gentlemen here is that mr. president, if you do the research -- as political campaign was funded by a special interests. goldman sachs is one of his sponsors, if you will. the whole political process -- the judges, the selection process -- everythin
're trying to come up with some follow-on actions to the copenhagen meeting. it was not obviously what people had hoped for, but it did give us a starting point to make the case that we have to make. and transferring and mitigating and technology are all part of that. . those amounts would swamp current development assistance. what's the prospect for making that assistance truly additional, so it doesn't rob peter to pay paul, and secondly, what are your plans for implementation within the u.s. government. would it be teleusaid, or separate? how would it be coordinated? >> some of it would be through usaid and the state department and some would be through contributions to multilateral institutions like the world bank. we are just beginning to work out how best to deliver thon commitment. it's a fair question, fred, how much of it is additive and how much of it is out of the current budget. we don't know that yet, because we don't know what the congress is going to do. we obviously believe that this is a critical point. we would hope that with the stimulus money, we will actually be competiti
